Well placed hotel

Pros: Public transport access and everything you needed was available there. Staff were friendly.
Cons: A bit of knowledge about the public transport when you first check in, especially if you are a single person.
This hotel is equidistant between the airport and city. The Hop-on Hop-off bus stops at the bus stop opposite at 8.45am and this is a great way to see the city. I did 48 hour tour. The hotel has restaurants and bars nearby if you don't want to eat there and is well serviced by public buses. I would definitely recommend it.

Comfy clean hotel not too far from the city

Staff always helpful. Lots of lounge seats in lobby. Great bar. Room was a little warm with no a/c but they gave us a fan to use. Very comfy king size bed.
